*Occasionally we like to provide a blog post that will help you get to know Joe. From our technicians to our Corporate staff to our hardworking franchisees – we think our company is full of people you ought to know!**
This week we’d like to introduce you to one of our newest members of the Corporate staff, Bridget Cardillo. Bridget joined Mosquito Joe after relocating to Virginia Beach from the Atlanta, GA area. She has worked in both agency and corporate settings, including a company that sold mobile accessories franchises. Mixing her love of all things digital along with the franchise business makes the role a perfect fit.
I relocated from Atlanta to Virginia Beach for personal reasons, but when I found the Digital Marketing Manager position at Mosquito Joe during my job hunt, I knew I’d found a fit professionally as well. From my first interview, I knew I was going to love it and feel at home (insert cheese emoji for how that sounds, but it’s true!). The brand is so much fun, the CEO has a clear vision, and the people I work with every day are awesome.
What are the biggest strengths professionally that you bring to the Mosquito Joe team?
I find one of my biggest strengths is relationship building. Whether that’s with co-workers or franchisees, it’s something I really enjoy. I genuinely like getting to know new people, and I feel it’s an integral part of having a productive and happy work place. My experiences have also shaped who I am professionally. Most recently, I worked at a digital marketing agency for two years. Being able to handle an extremely fast-paced work environment has improved my time management and multi-tasking skills. And my first job out of college was an in-house marketing position for a franchise company. Having the ability to speak some of the same language has helped my role here at Mosquito Joe.
What’s your favorite Mosquito Joe tagline and why?
“Did you mean to donate blood on the way to the mailbox?” Every time I explain my job and how fun the brand is, I quote this tagline. It makes me laugh and never fails to make everyone else laugh too!
If they made a movie about your life, who would you want to play you and why?
Blake Lively! We don’t look alike in the least, but she’s my celebrity girl crush. Fun fact: she played Bridget or ‘Bee’ in The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants movies. It’s clearly meant to be.
If you could plan your ultimate vacation, where would you go?
Everywhere! I absolutely love to travel. If I had to choose one place, it would probably be Thailand. They took a trip there on a recent season of The Bachelor (guilty pleasure!) and it just looked so dreamy.
What is something most people don’t know about you?
If I could speak in a British accent for the rest of my life and not sound ridiculous, I would. Also, I can quote the entire Mean Girls movie.
